I had a day trip planned for Wednesday, & lunch out. Not sure if I want to picnic it, or wait for the reopening. Bummer, we had escaped the second shut down, due to low caseload, but now this order is state wide.

Indeed. And we're stuck with it again at least for the foreseeable future. DL was a stopgap measure. Some students did better than others with it but it still boils down to parent involvement. For the upper grades, it's not all that difficult to check the work as done using things like Google classroom, etc. -- or just not do it at all (heard that complaint from a lot of teachers I work with).

I am sure that some of the ELL kids (and there are a ton of them here from 40+ different countries here) didn't have parents who knew English well enough to navigate that mess, and more than a few don't have access to broadband. School is supposed to start here on August 13 and the idiot administrators keep having meetings and taking polls and haven't started to implement anything.

Again, agreed. And unfortunately, the kids on the lower socio-economic rungs suffer the most since those households are more likely to be single parent and/or parents who don't have the type of jobs with the luxury of working from home. Then there's the ESA needs which can't be filled at all, along with a host of other issues. There needs to be a better balance for the needs of everyone (students, parents and staff) to be met. This all or nothing approach isn't going to sit well with a lot of people.

Not the ones I know and that's more than a just a few. Teaching remotely isn't a pleasant experience.
The real issue is the inability to pay for all the safety measures which would need to be put in place to open schools while minimizing risks. It could definitely be done, but it would take more effort and money than those in charge want to expend. So now we're set to lose another year of education for our kids.

Thanks a lot. A lot of people will now be missing further paychecks, ALL BECAUSE SOME OF YOU COULD NOT SHOW A MODICUM OF CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS.

Gov. Newsom gives update on COVID-19 in California
Or maybe it's partly Newsom's fault too for granting all those variances allowing counties to reopen too soon that never really had the virus under control, especially in Southern CA. The infection rate in SoCal is something like triple or more than the Bay Area.

And San Mateo County with the 2nd highest case rate and high death rate in the Bay Area gets to stay open? Crap makes no sense.

Newsom has done a terrible job, almost as bad as Trump.

well said, and I don't have any answers. Given today's newest round of shutdowns I am thinking all learning will be remotely done.

I think for the most part Newsom has done pretty well but I do think that he jumped the gun in reopening too many things all at once. But the bigger problem is that some counties are AWOL when it comes to trying to cut down on new cases and enforce existing orders.

What is the point of arguing this? I don't have the energy to spend two or three hours of back and forth talking about Gavin Newsom only to end it with each of still having the same opinion we started this with.
